Today’s featured weight loss success story: Lequenta lost 81 pounds by exercising and changing her eating habits.
After I had a add an accident in 2012, after my 31st birthday, I was placed on blood pressure pills and some other medication to try to get me to heal. They put me on steroids which made me gain weight. Then, just because I was doing different things at work and not eating the correct way I started to gain. My friend Treesje took that before photo of me and I was just disgusted. I was three hundred and seventy four pounds. My current weight is 293 pounds. My goal weight is to get to 215 pounds I started working out. I got a membership and asked what I can do. I started working out 7 days a week for the first 2 months. I did not take a break. After 2 months, I was strictly doing cardio. I changed how I eat and I don’t look at it as a diet I look at it as a lifestyle.
Now, I work out 5 times a week. I do cardio and then weight lifting. I no longer eat bread pasta and I stopped drinking milk. I tried to drink a lot of water…a lot of water. I have a lot of fresh fruits and vegetables. I eat fish and chicken, but not pork. I’m always on the go and doing have something, because if I’m sitting down that’s going to allow the weight to sit on you. My ultimate goal is to get off my blood pressure pills.
